Excerpt: Max Payne is a man who’s insanely uncomfortable inside his own skin. He’s still haunted by the death of his family, and in Max Payne 3 , his body—more so than any random member of Brazil’s criminal underbelly—is the target of his most vicious attacks. Booze. Pills. Booze. Pills. Booze. Pills.
Pros: Story’s well-done when it’s at its best; fantastic animations make shooting feel amazing; neat multiplayer ideas.
Cons: Story often secondary to shooting; difficulty spikes, bad checkpoints, and constant cover often frustrate; multiplayer lacks real hooks.

Excerpt: Un peu plus de huit années se sont écoulées depuis la sortie de Max Payne 2 sur PC. Autant d’années qui ont défilé sur le visage de notre héros dépressif, amateur d’antidouleurs. Pépé Max en a-t-il toujours sous le coude ?
